This is your typical gitchy gift shop full of shot glasses and typical souvenirs. Lots of geodes and rocks. The staff seemed friendly enough and there are tons of options that say Kentucky on them. It's about what you should expect.

If you're looking for some kitschy souvenirs, this is your spot in Cave city. Lots of wizards, wolves, and NASCAR paraphernalia. HUGE SELECTION of rocks and geodes. Nice place to kill half an hour on a hot day.

Odd little place. The walk though museum wasn't worth paying money for although makes you chuckle but definitely not what we expected!

A gift shop experience of everything except the kitchen sink. Great rock shop too. Take the Mystery House tour for a small fee. Lots of fun!

Lots of stuff here. Pretty much all of the different souvenirs you would typically find at a few different gift shops all under one roof. The cool thing about this place is the rock shop across the parking lot from the gift store. Beautiful rocks,...More
